Another First

Lil W’s First School Picture

Should this picture make me cry?
I’m not sure. But it does.
It’s like it serves as a reminder of just how quickly this time goes by–how fast the moments pass.
One day he’s laying in my arms, grabbing my cheeks with his pudgy little fingers while I feed him,
then the next thing I know he’s wearing layers, popping his collar and semi-smiling with a toothy grin for his first school photograper.

Slow down time. darn you.

    Love his little teeth. He looks way more put together than I ever did in a school pic. Way to go, Momma.

    Aww so cute! I know what you mean, I was rocking my now 5 year old (my only) kidding around yesterday and I was singing rock a bye baby and he was pretending to cry and it brought me back to when he was just a little baby πŸ™‚ It is so hard to comprehend sometimes how time passes & how fast he grows and changes. Just enjoy πŸ™‚ That’s all you can do πŸ™‚

    This is my first time commenting here, though I have been following along for a little while now. Your little man is adorable! My son had his first school pictures taken too and I can’t wait to see how they turned out. It’s crazy how quickly they grow!

    How embarrassing is it that I actually shed a tear when I saw this post. My little guy is 2.5 and the idea of him going to preschool next year a few days a week breaks my heart. Why do our little lovies grow up so darn fast?!

    Just wait until he is 13 years old πŸ™
    My daughter will be 13 in December & everytime I see a pic of her when she was little it just breaks my heart.
    Time sure doesn’t wait on us does it?

    How cute is he? Love that he is all ready poppin his collar. Heehee. My sons first pictures were ruined by the prescool thinkin it would be a good idea to dress the kids in tuxs. Ugh. At least his fo-hawk looked cool with it.

    Wow, this is a picture that if you pull it out and how his future girlfriends he’ll be proud of! So sweet. Makes me want to tear up for you, I wish we can just pause time in some of those moments that we want to hang onto so bad. But then…something else great happens and it’s all worth the time going by for it.

    Hang on to every moment because they grow so fast. I still enjoy pictures of my children and they are in their 40’s. How time flies. I know that you are so proud that your button could pop off. He sure is a handsome dude!

    OMG, he’s such a handsome little man. I love his picture! We just took my son to check out a preschool for him today and he quickly ran off to play with the other kids. He didn’t even looks for us. Kinda made me sad that he’s growing up so fast. He said, “Mommy, I’m ready to go to school.” Baby W sure doesn’t look like a baby anymore… πŸ™‚
